Embden Goose

>> Mar 12, 2011


While I took their pictures on a muddy field, the geese were coming out from the field and walking toward me. Awww, straightly I thought they were annoyed and wanted to chase me! But since they were walking slowly, I still had a chance taking pictures while walking backward (just in case if I must run!). Soon I found out that they weren’t chasing me, they just want to move onto another part of the field. What a relief :)

The Embden Goose is a breed of domestic goose. The origins of this breed are thought to be from region North Sea, in Holland and Germany. These geese are pure white with a short, light orange bill, and orange feet and shanks.

The legs are rather short. The head is oval-shaped and they have a long and graceful neck. The eyes are an ocean blue. The body is bulky and well rounded, having a long back and a short tail. The wings are very strong and of a good length. The feathers are close and very hard. The breed’s habits are to search for tidbits in the grass and water. The adult bird will commence laying eggs fairly early in the year, in February as a rule, laying 30 to 40 eggs.
